Catfish Grabblers, Tennessee
Marty and Fostana Jenkins, and their company Catfish Grabblers, are fixtures in the sport of noodling. They’re famous within handfishing circles for a DVD they produced, “Girls Gone Grabblin’,” and have been featured several times on national TV. The pair leads trips on muddy reservoirs along the Tennessee River near their home in East Tennessee. The cost for a day of guiding and lessons is $800 per person for two people, and $400 per person with groups of five or more. Lodging, meals, and transportation included.
